Pep Guardiola wants a rematch with MLS. It sounds like he’s trying to tread on this.
The MLS All-Stars got a bit too physical with Bayern Munich and Pep Guardiola is whining about it. Let’s give him his rematch.
Wednesday night’s MLS All-Star game ended in controversy when Bayern Munich manager Pep Guardiola refused to shake the hands of the MLS All-Stars coaching staff. He even gave them a nice little finger wag.
Pep was pissed because the game — an exhibition — featured a lot of physical play and an injury to Bayern star Bastian Schweinsteiger resulting from a tackle by Will Johnson. Osvaldo Alonso also got in on the action, deservedly picking up a yellow card for a similar nasty foul a bit earlier in the second half.
Johnson and Alonso are known psychos to MLS fans but apparently not to Guardiola, who sent Schweinsteiger out there to get mauled by a couple of rottweilers who have no idea what “friendly match” means. Now that he knows the deal, Pep is talking smack and demanding a rematch.
“We tried to play and we did. Congratulations to MLS for this victory. I hope they are going to invite us next year to try and make revenge and I hope to prepare a little bit better. Now, we will be sure [about] what was going on. We will prepare much better, that we will do it. I hope our invitation is coming.”
Oooooh, we’re so scared. SCOOOOOOOOOREBOARD.
Your invitation is coming, Pep, and you don’t even know what you’re in for. It sounds like you’re trying to tread. We recommend against treading on this.
